New York - Rupert Grint is considering a stage debut in a gritty play about gangland murder.

The 24-year-old actor - who starred as Ron Weasley alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson in eight Harry Potter films - has reportedly performed in a workshop for Jez Butterworth's Mojo, reports the Daily Mail newspaper.

Grint attended the play reading held by Ian Rickson - who directed the original 1995 Royal Court production - with a cast that included 35-year-old actor, Daniel Mays and Robert Sheehan of the E4 drama Misfits.

The gritty drama is set in Soho, London, in 1958 and focuses on a handsome rock star who gets caught in dodgy dealings involving a gangster, a club owner and band manager.

While Grint's representatives are yet to confirm the reports, he is seemingly following in his Harry Potter co-star Daniel's footsteps as Radcliffe appeared in the controversial Equus in 2007, in which he stripped of naked.

Daniel went on to star in a new Broadway production of How to Succeed in Business in 2011 and can currently be seen in West End play The Cripple of Inishmaan. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
